Today’s Top Pick is a 2019 Honda HA-420 HondaJet Elite.

The HA-420 HondaJet was among the most anticipated aircraft in history in part because, by the time it received FAA certification in 2016, it had been in the works for decades. Many people familiar with Honda’s vast automotive operations had caught wind of the seemingly odd aviation project underway far behind the scenes.

When the jet finally emerged, it was clear that it incorporated a number of true innovations, starting with its over-the-wing-mounted engines. This new setup helped to isolate the engines from the cabin, reducing noise and vibration while also giving passengers more space but removing the invasive mounting structure from the fuselage. The result is a cabin that is larger than many would expect.

The HondaJet’s cruising speed also drew a lot of attention. While using power similar to that of competing jets, the Honda could cruise at 420 ktas, which was higher than its closest rivals. 

This 2019 HondaJet Elite has 4,120 hours on the airframe and 3,524 hours on each of its GE Honda HF120 engines since new. The aircraft is under Honda’s Flight Ready P2 maintenance program as well as the CAMP maintenance tracking system. The engines have logged 2,520 cycles, and the jet has performed 2,913 landings.

The panel features Garmin G3000 integrated avionics with a GFC 700-enhanced automatic flight control system, GWX 70 weather radar, radar altimeter, TCAS I, TAWS Class B, synthetic vision, Garmin Flight Stream 510, Jeppesen Chartview, and Cockpit Iridium.

Pilots looking for a small, single-pilot jet with innovative features and performance that matches or surpasses many larger models should consider this 2019 HA-420 HondaJet, which is available for $3.2 million on AircraftForSale.

You can arrange financing of the aircraft through FLYING Finance. For more information, email [email protected].
